After a slight service snafu, I was able to begin my meal. I began with The Culver’s Deluxe, which I ordered standard. The burger came with two, thin patties, each with a slice of what appeared to be American cheese melted on top. Despite being thin the patties were full of flavor and not dry. The cheese was fine, as were the standard toppings of lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, and mayo. What really made the burger was the bun. It was soft and buttery and held some of the residual burger juice as well. Overall this was a very delicious burger.
Next I tried the Wisconsin Cheese Curds. Going into my trip my curiosity was raised for the curds. Not only is it an unusual fast food item, but it has received critical acclaim, ranking as the forty-eighth best fast food item in the country by TheRinger.com. My expectations were high. My initial taste test left me instantly reminded of a mozzarella stick. The breading was extremley similar and, despite Culver’s website saying the cheese was cheddar, it tasted like mozzarella to me. As I ate the bite sized curds, I began to wish that some sort of dipping sauce was served with them. I was also struck by how large the serving was, my bag had over twenty curds in it. The curds tasted good, and were a unique item, but I do wish there was some type of sauce that came with them.
Finally, I tasted my Chocolate Shake. This was a very thick shake, the first few sips required a lot of effort. There was nothing too special or unique about the shake, it was just your typical good chocolate shake. If you like a shake with your burger, you will probably enjoy that combo here as well.
